So let's get started.

Step 1: Making Paper Rolls.

To make a paper roll you need an A4 sheet paper/Newspaper now just roll it using a stick I used a pen refill to roll them down and easily slide out the refill and using glue attach their ends. you need minimum 72 paper rolls now using a marker pen or a thick stick to roll and using glue attach their ends also and let them dry.

To color paper rolls you need a poster color/fabric color. using a flat brush or a round brush color them separately so that it may look beautiful.

Step 3: Sticking Paper Rolls

Now using a cardboard cut a round circle of an 8cm radius and stick the paper rolls to it and fill them by attaching one upon one with glue.until the paper rolls get finished. now take one more plate of 8 cm and one more cut inside in it of 6 or 5 cm. It will be easy if we make a unique name for this section A1.

Step 4: Making a Strong Base

Now using a newspaper and quilling it makes a base X2 after using your thumb gently press in its tip and paste them in their tip.afterwards joint this base to A1.
